CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

This application claims the benefit under 35 USC §119 of Chinese Patent Application having Serial No. 200510030342.9 filed on Oct. 10, 2005, which is incorporated by reference herein.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

Embodiments of the present invention generally relate to a handsaw. More particularly, embodiments of the present invention relate to a handsaw with an optional replaceable blade that can be used in fixed depth cutting to saw wood or other articles.

2. Description of the Related Art

A conventional handsaw has a saw blade and a handle. The saw blade has at least one flange. The handle is slotted on one side. The flange and the slot correspond, matching in order, to realize a position fixation. An example of this handsaw is disclosed in German Patent No. 2931426 (1982). The problem of this handsaw is the instability and the difficulty of replacing the saw blade when cutting with a fixed cutting depth.

There is a need, therefore, for a handsaw in which fixed-depth cutting can be performed easily, and for a saw blade that is replaceable.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In one or more embodiments, the handsaw can be used for fixed depth cutting and allows for the changing of the saw blade. In one or more embodiments, the handsaw includes a handle and a positioning device fixed on the handle via one or more handle fastening members, such as nuts, bolts, screws, jack catches, and seals. In one or more embodiments, a replaceable saw blade can be set in the positioning device and can be connected to the handle via a movable disc nut. In one or more embodiments, the handle can be fixed to the replaceable saw blade by one or more blade fastening members, such as nuts, bolts, screws, jack catches, and seals.

In one or more embodiments herein, one or more slots can be formed for positioning the one or more handle fastening members on the side of the replaceable saw blade closer to the handle. In one or more embodiments, one or more slots can be formed for positioning the one or more handle fastening members on one of the lateral sides of the replaceable saw blade, while the blade can be arranged on the other side. In one or more embodiments, one or more slots can be formed on the side of the handle closer to the blade fastening members. In one or more embodiments, one or more additional slots can be superimposed on other slots of the handle and/or other slots of the replaceable saw blade.

In one or more embodiments, the positioning device can include one or more belt-shaped plates. In one or more embodiments, the replaceable saw blade and the handle can be connected via fastening members. In one or more embodiments, the saw blade can be replaced very easily. In one or more embodiments, the length of the replaceable saw blade can be changed with the movable disc nut to realize a fixed-depth cutting objective. In one or more embodiments, the hand saw can be used for fixed-depth cutting and the saw blade can be replaced.
